Oakley College is a recently established and already successful college provision for 18 to 25 year olds with learning difficulties in West Kent and surrounding areas.
Why are we successful? Well, the best way to find out is to arrange to visit, come and talk with us and see for yourself. You are most welcome and we encourage you to do so. In essence though, our success is built upon knowing our learners and tailoring our programmes of study and learning opportunities to meet each learner’s individual needs – providing high aspiration and challenge, underpinned by appropriate, targeted support and interventions.
We work closely with a number of employers and other organisations to ensure that the skills, knowledge and understanding gained in college are applied in the “real world” so that every learner makes clear progress and develops into a young person who is respected and valued in their community and is confident and able to contribute fully. On leaving Oakley College our young people will gain employment, further training or meaningful volunteering roles and be able to live their life more independently – with less dependency on others as they continue to develop, mature and thrive.
